TITLE: Adapting to Covid-19: Experiences of a Philanthropy Infrastructure Organisation

INTRODUCTION: South Africa, as well as the entire world, is facing unprecedented socio-economic consequences, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The South African non-profit sector is likewise especially exposed, as it navigates a host of unintended consequences while ensuring that it continues to support its communities. This thought piece is intended to highlight the challenges and opportunities in unlocking much needed emergency philanthropic funds for the sector through experience as an infrastructure organisation, to those non-profit organisations that play a critical role in South African civil society, and simultaneously advise donors on making philanthropic donations, quickly and safely.

CAF Southern Africa (CAFSA) is part of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) Global Alliance, a collective of locally led infrastructure organisations, operating across ten countries, each working independently within their specific geographical and country contexts, to advance philanthropy and grow giving, in support of local civil society.

Donate to CAFSA's Emergency Fund to assist NPOs during the COVID-19 crisis

Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA) has launched an emergency fund to support local Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) during this challenging period.

With the economic and health challenges emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, thousands of NPOs are set to be impacted by funding shortages, which will result in a reduction or discontinuation of services and dedicated staff losing their jobs.

To keep these critical services going, CAFSA is mobilising support to make funding available to help NPOs who render essential services to the most marginalised individuals, groups and communities in our society.

We are calling on both individuals and corporates to donate. The relevant bank details for donations are listed below.

CAFSA will process all donations and ensure that due diligence, governance compliance and reporting are fully implemented. CAFSA will further ensure that all donations are designated to validated beneficiary organisations. Donors will also be issued with Section 18(a) certificates for income tax purposes.
